Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2011 Laborde Double Select Syrah is from the family’s vineyards in La Consulta in the Uco Valley, from 50-year-old vines brought over by viticulturalist Luis Laborde. The wine is aged in French oak for 14 months, of which 50% is new. It has a voluminous bouquet of kirsch, fresh fig, singed leather and just a hint of eau-de-vie. The palate is medium-bodied, with an attractive gamey, leather note on the entry. It has good structure and a pleasant grip to it, the finish spicy and tense, with those gamey notes returning with a dash of cracked black pepper. Drink 2013-2019+ (Oct 2012)

Laura Catena grew up in a wine-making family in Mendoza. Although she now splits her time between Mendoza and San Francisco (where she is a Emergency Room Physician, university professor, mother of three, and accomplished tango dancer!), Laura’s heart remains in Argentina and winemaking. She had a vision of creating a new breed of Argentine wines: small quantities, artisan quality, and true to their individual terroirs. A true pioneer of small-grower relations in Mendoza, Laura’s incredible, limited production wines come from some of Argentina’s best fruit from low-yield, high elevation, family-owned vineyards. Her final varietal blends deliver power along with complexity and finesse. They are the ultimate expression of rigorous vineyard management, viticultural experimentation, strict irrigation controls, skilled winemaking, and a quest for quality at any cost. Estela Perinetti, the winemaker at Luca Winery, hails from a prestigious background in Argentine winemaking and believes that good winemaking comes from care, precision, and attention to details. Luca is named after Laura’s first-born son. The family crest (the McDermott family) that appears in the label’s background is that of Laura’s husband, Dan. Laura is continually inspired by the synthesis of cultures in her own family, and this international inspiration infuses the style and quality of her wines.
